DAV (Disabled American Veterans) is dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. DAV accomplishes this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life.  DAV Introduction video: DAV helps keep promises made to veterans.

The NVLSP is a nonprofit organization that has worked since 1980 to ensure that the government delivers to our nation's 22 million veterans and active duty personnel the benefits to which they are entitled because of disabilities resulting from their military service to our country. This questionnaire was developed to help veterans and their advocates identify the VA disability benefits to which they may be entitled. Survey questions enable users to determine the specific disability benefits claims that should be filed with the VA.
